. it would be progrowth and no more tax hikes by the way. spending and the debt are the top issue of concern for voters. look, these heinous mass murders are not about weapons. question -- why isn't anyone tackling the really tough issue that may be the root causes of these atrocities? such as broken families, such as the absence of fathers who set examples for their sons? such as the loss of faith in our schools? such as our homes and our culture that have lost faith as well. tonight, we are going to talk about the family values breakdown in america. "the kudlow report" begins right now. another key point tonight. for most of the history, america drew at 3.5% per you. the last dozen years however, we have dropped below 2%. and the so-called obama recovery is just a tad above that 2% rate. which should be unacceptable. it is the worst in the post world war ii era. so the question tonight, what's holding back the american economy? here's my quick road map for an economic boom. start off with major cuts in government spending. we should stop paying people not to work. then cut large and small

wanted 45 cents. intel turned in 48. looks pretty good, right? part of that was due to a tax benefit. intel specsed a tax rate of 27% and got 23%. that helped a bit. gross margins came in stronger than expected at 58% where intel had guided to a mid point gross margin of 57%. but there was bad news beyond that for the investment community. for q11, intel guided to a mid point in revenue of $12.7 billion, plus or minus a half a billion dollars. and for the full fiscal year, 2013, intel said just expect low single digit revenue increases, growth margin to 60% and cap ex at $13 billion. that is a couple billion higher than wall street had expected. >> jon fortt there. we'll have more on china to come. our next guest weighs in. don't go anywhere. >>> welcome back to "worldwide exchange." china's economy rebounds in the fourth quarter topping expectationes and snapping seven straight quarters of slowing growth. the british government says there's no indication the hostage crisis is over in algeria. this as reports emerge that dozens may have been killed in the rescue operations. >>> intel
